GET A CALL BACK

Worcester County is a county that can be found in the northeastern state of Maryland. Home to a population which has been estimated at 52,000 people as of 2019 by the United States Census Bureau, Worcester County is one of the smaller counties in the state by population. But being rural or sparsely populated is no longer the safe haven it once was since America’s drug epidemic has ravaged even the most rural communities across the country. From 2015 to 2017 there were 60 drug deaths in Worcester County according to a report from County Health Rankings and Roadmaps, a total which only shows a glimpse of the total number of people who struggled with drug and alcohol addiction. Each death is a life which could have been saved if the person had gotten the right kind of help for their needs at the right point in their life. But so many people never make it into treatment before a tragedy occurs and life is lost. This is why you should never ignore the signs of substance abuse in a loved one waiting for them to be “ready”. Intervention saves lives and can mean the difference between success and failure.
